Authorities have arrested two people in connection with the alleged kidnapping of two young Amish sisters in upstate New York.
39-year-old Stephen Howells and 25-year-old Nicole Vaisey are in custody, each charged with two counts of kidnapping.
A neighbor describes the pair as boyfriend and girlfriend and says three children lived with them.
The suspects are accused of abducting 12-year-old Fannie Miller and her 6-year-old sister Delila from their family farm stand on Wednesday.
They were returned home safely a day after their disappearance.
SOUNDBITE: ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE KEVIN WELLS, SAYING:
"The girls were strong. They were able to verbalize to the investigators some different facts about their time in captivity."
Officials say the abductors dropped them off in front of a stranger's home.
The man living inside recognized the missing girls and drove them back to their family farm.
Authorities have not discussed a motive in the girls' kidnapping.
